Star San cloudy

Recommended Posts

My Star San solution is cloudy, will it still be effective or have I wasted my money? I used a dilution of 1 litre tap water : 1ml SS. The report by my water company gives the pH as a maximum of pH8 with a mean of pH7.8. I'm guessing that it's the alkaline nature of the tap water giving the turbidity? I have access to diH2O at work, although not sure that drawing off a gallon and strapping it to my motorbike is a good idea to get it home!

Thanks.

I would use distilled water if I were you. Star San is an acid based sanitizer. With water that high in Ph, I think it might lose at least some of its effectiveness right off the bat.
